CentriMag Pump

 

 

The robust but compact form allows it to be a permanently situated in an ITU but also perfectly lends itself to patient transport by air or ground ambulance. With over 250 CentriMag consoles located in 31 centres across the UK & Ireland, and over 1300 pumps sold in 2015, the CentriMag is a clear choice for any centre wishing update their older and less compatible support systems, and to join an already established network of experienced users.

 

CentriMag® and PediVAS™ are products of Thoratec. Chalice Medical are the authorised distributor of these products for the United Kingdom.

The revolutionary and completely unique way the pump is magnetically levitated allows it to function without any bearings, flexing sacs or contact between the impeller and housing. This eliminates particle or heat generation and massively reduces the risk of hemolysis and thrombus formation, giving clear benefits to the patient.
